Mid cycle spotting anyone??

Just checking if any ladies have any advice on mid cycle spotting. I'm currently CD19 and am still on "low" fertility according to my CBEFM, so I know its not ovulation spotting. It's pretty late in my cycle to still be on low fertility but maybe that's another issue, who knows.


I have had light spotting for the past 2 days, not sure if that means this is an anovulatory cycle or what.


Any insight??


This ttc stuff is for the birds. :)

I had mid-cycle spotting this month too but I know it was ovulation spotting, for the first time ever. Funny thing is that it was the day I had my LH surge, not the day after (the day I actually ovulated). So I don't think the blood was from the egg breaking out, it was probably just a little extra blood from the change in hormones. Maybe you're on a surge but not at the peak yet? Are you using the OPK thingie twice a day now?

Sorry Lisa, I don't have much experience with midcycle spotting. Is there any chance that you are pregnant now? Was your last AF lighter than usual?

Keep us posted, I hope you figure it out soon!

It could be implantation bleeding. Is it pinkish or brownish or more like regular period spotting?

Thank you all for responding! I stopped spotting yesterday afternoon and now its back again. It is bright red but just a tiiiiiny little bit when I look for it (if you know what i mean...sorry, TMI!).


I dont think i'm pregnant, I had a normal period right on time last month and no pregnancy symtoms.


Kate, to answer your question, the CBEFM is only used once a day (FMU). I wish I could supplement that with OPK's this month to see what is up but I am out of them! Argggh. The CBEFM will give you Low fertility until you have an estrogen change, then it will give you High fertility until you get your Peak (the Peak coincides with a LH surge on an OPK). I'm STILL on Low today (CD 20) and getting REALLY frustrated! Then add the spotting in and I'm really confused...


I've never in my life had spotting before so this is odd. Maybe my body is still adjusting from being off the pill? Hmmmm.
